Machine Gun Kelly Creates Unforgettable Moment at Belgium Concert

Machine Gun Kelly delivered a surprising and unconventional gift to a fan during his recent concert in Belgium. The incident occurred at the Rock Werchter festival where the rapper noticed a fan holding a peculiar sign that read, “I just came from Mexico 4 U 2 punch me in the face.”

In a video shared on his social media, Kelly can be seen questioning the fan’s unusual request, asking, “Why do you want me to punch you in the face so bad?”

The fan responded with a declaration of love, to which Kelly jokingly warned, “I got rings on, dude. That s—‘s gonna hurt.” Despite the potential repercussions, Kelly contemplated fulfilling the fan’s request, acknowledging the dilemma he faced. “It’s a lose-lose for me,” he admitted.

The footage then cuts to Kelly performing his hit song “my ex’s best friend.” After descending from the elevated platform where he was performing, the rapper approached the front row where the fan stood, examining the sign with curiosity. Making eye contact with the camera, Kelly playfully landed a punch on the fan, much to the fan’s delight. The rapper received a double thumbs-up in response.

“I love you!” Kelly shouted as he returned to the stage.

Kelly shared the entire incident on Instagram with the caption, “making dreams come true,” accompanied by a thumbs-up emoji.

Fans had mixed reactions to the video, with some expressing concerns about potential lawsuits. One user commented, “Lawsuit gets filed the next day and homeboy buys Mexico.” Another pointed out that Kelly made sure to show the written request to the camera, possibly as a safeguard against legal issues.

However, amidst the varying opinions, there were fans who found the moment exciting. One fan lamented, “God, I wish that was me,” while another user questioned why people couldn’t just be normal.

In a surprising turn of events, the fan who was punched also took to Instagram, claiming to be the individual in the video. He expressed gratitude to MGK for making his dream come true and clarified that the request was not a fetish or anything of that nature, as some comments had suggested.

While this incident may have raised eyebrows, it is worth noting that performers occasionally find themselves on the receiving end of unexpected violence from fans. This time, Machine Gun Kelly’s action reversed that trend.

Just last month, Bebe Rexha sought medical attention after being hit in the face with a cell phone thrown by a fan. The fan responsible for the incident was subsequently arrested. Another incident involved Kelsea Ballerini, who was hit in the face with a thrown bracelet during a concert. Although startled, Ballerini returned to the stage after ensuring she was unharmed. Similarly, Pink encountered an unconventional display of fandom when a fan threw their mother’s ashes onstage during one of her performances, leaving the singer surprised and bewildered.

Machine Gun Kelly’s decision to fulfill a fan’s request in such an extraordinary manner has certainly created a memorable moment in his concert history.
